Vlaco wishes to step up efforts to increase widespread knowledge and use of digestate and compost. The recuperating and application of organic matter and nutrients back to the soil in agriculture, gardening, public spaces, etc has many agronomical, ecological and economical advantages which are unfortunately still met by a lack of knowledge about these products. Proposed project-offer is constructing a matrix of all relevant characteristics and values stemming from recent European studies, complemented by additional field tests & and inclusive info-tool.
Vlaco npo supports and implements the policy of biowaste (green waste, vegetable, fruit and garden waste and industrial bio-waste). We are a membership organisation with representation of both the Flemish government and the private sector (private waste treatment companies). Vlaco npo defends the interests of the sector. All our activities support the sustainable material cycle of biowaste. We emphasize the quality of recycling biowaste (both at home on small scale and professionally on large scale). Vlaco is a member of ECN (European Compost Network) and supports an European QAS (Quality Assurance Scheme). Vlaco pursues, within the framework of green energy, a synergy of material and energy recuperation. Always bearing in mind the production of a qualitative end product used as a fertilizer, soil improver, ingredient for substrates or as a fundation in the garden.
